Ratcheting Wrench Works in Tight Spaces on Pad Mount Transformers

ratcheting wrench

Lowell’s ratcheting wrench is designed to make it easier for utility workers to open the pentagon security nuts and adjust the 3/4-inch hexagon tie-down nuts used on pad mount transformers. The tool offers a number of convenience and safety features.
The 101XRS is built for tough duty with a rugged one-piece design that incorporates gear, shaft and sockets. The sturdy ratchet mechanism reverses with the flick of a lever. There are 32 teeth that reduce the throw angle between teeth and make the tool a good choice for working in tight areas. For extra strength, the head of the wrench is secured with a pin that also eliminates wobbling for better torque and reduced wear. Torque has been tested to 90 ft. lbs.
A cushioned grip improves comfort and reduces worker fatigue. Handle length is 7 inches and the tool weighs 1 1/2 lbs. It is guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from date of delivery.
